About Websites By Jon

I started building websites in 2007 as a hobby of mine while I was attending the University of Akron. Over the past 6 years, I have built, managed, bought, and sold over 40 websites and currently manage a network of about 20 as my full time job. It has been a very rewarding experience and I love the freedom that working for myself has enabled. However, I keep being asked by friends and family with their own small businesses how they can get started online. After explaining a few basic steps to build a website, they always look at me bewildered and ask if they can just pay me to do it. Everyone has been impressed with the quality of their website and advised me to start helping other people in the area do the same thing. Thus, WebsitesByJon.com was started in 2012.

About Jon’s Technical Skills

Running my own network of websites has given me the skills necessary to help other people build and grow their business online. I have worked with various website building tools such as Dreamweaver, WordPress, Joomla, and even basic HTML; but I have found that WordPress is the fastest and most inexpensive way to build a modern website that has great functionality. WordPress allows myself to quickly customize an existing visual theme or build one from scratch with a framework like Thesis or Genesis. I have experience using plug-ins or inserting code to add great functionality such as a newsletter service with Aweber or MailChimp; social media integration with Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube; video or photo galleries, and even basic eCommerce.

I have also spent a lot of time researching and implementing a tactic called Search Engine Optimization or SEO. This is a way to improve different aspects of your website so it will rank higher in Google, Bing, and other search engines. There is also an off-site aspect that involves gaining relevance in the search engines eyes from links pointed to your site, social media chatter, brand recognition, and other factors. I also have experience creating social media pages at Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube for my various websites to help advertise and connect with new and existing customers.

About Jon’s Personal Life

I currently live in Canton, Ohio with my wife Kyra and our awesome Goldendoodle Hikaru. When I’m not spending time on my computer for work, I am spending time on my computer for everything else. I am a total nerd and built my own PC so I could play all the new video games with good graphics – my favorite is Starcraft 2 and Fallout: New Vegas! When I’m not hiding from the sun, you can find me at the local dog parks. Hikaru’s favorite is the Schneider Dog Park across from Glen Oak High School and you can find us there during nice days.

If you are interested in hiring me or you have any questions; please contact me and I’ll be glad to speak with you.
